Abstract:
(EN) A method of setting the rides height of the air springs (130, 132, 134, 136) and air pressures of the tires (300), including receiving a user selected setting or preprogrammed ride height settings; sensing a ride height of and air pressure within, each of the air springs (130, 132, 134, 136); determining the weight of the vehicle based on the sensed ride height and air pressure within each of the air springs (130, 132, 134, 136); providing specified ride heights for the left and right front and rear air springs (130, 132, 134, 136); determining specified air pressures for the left and right front and rear tire inflators, based upon the determined weight of the vehicle and selected setting; inflating the left and right front and rear air springs (130, 132, 134, 136) to the specified ride heights; and inflating the left and right front and rear tires (300) to the specified air pressures.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de réglage du niveau des ressorts pneumatiques (130, 132, 134, 136) et des pressions d'air des pneus (300) comprend la réception d'un réglage sélectionné par un utilisateur ou de réglages de niveau préprogrammés ; la détection d'un niveau et d'une pression d'air à l'intérieur de chacun des ressorts pneumatiques (130, 132, 134, 136) ; la détermination du poids du véhicule sur la base du niveau et de la pression d'air détectés à l'intérieur de chacun des ressorts pneumatiques (130, 132, 134, 136) ; la fourniture de niveaux spécifiés pour les ressorts pneumatiques gauche et droit, avant et arrière (130, 132, 134, 136) ; la détermination de pressions d'air spécifiées pour les gonfleurs de pneu gauche et droit, avant et arrière sur la base du poids déterminé du véhicule et du réglage sélectionné ; le gonflage des ressorts pneumatiques avant et arrière, gauche et droit (130, 132, 134, 136) aux niveaux spécifiés ; le gonflage des pneus gauche et droit, arrière et avant (300) aux pressions spécifiées.
